A welcome message from
Rev Rachel Wood


Welcome to the Gig Mill Methodist Church Web Site.

Hello I'm Rachel, the Minister at Gig Mill Methodist Church, and I would like to welcome you to this Web Site. Our website gives a good overview of the events and activities that happen during at Gig Mill, and you would be welcome to join us at any of them. However, the Church is about more than what happens in the building, because the Church is also about people. And as the people of Gig Mill, we try and live up to our mission statement which is:

  • We exist to share the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
  • We seek to express this grace, love and fellowship in our neighbourhood, in the town of Stourbridge and in the world community, through our work and worship, our listening and speaking, our care and commitment.
  • We will use and develop the church premises creatively and boldly as a place of worship and friendship, hope and healing, vitality and sanctuary.
  • We will work for the justice and joy of God's Kingdom, alongside all who are concerned for people and the communities in which they live.
  • We aim to serve members of our local community spiritually and socially, in prayer and protest, so that all may have life in its fullness.
  • We are prepared to take risks, having our hearts and minds open to God's Spirit - open to new truths, new ways and new people.

God bless you all.

Rachel Wood
